Famous quotes containing the word louis:

    I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
    And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.
    He is very, very like me from the heels up to the head;
    And I see him jump before me, when I jump into my bed.
    —Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)
